learning that chevron 'has' obtained those permits. kron 4's dan kerman joins us now.with details. dan - that rebuilding plan generated quite a bit of controversy? >> reporter: it did catherine. it was all about the type of pipe that would be used to replace the one that ruptured. the concern here is what would be best to prevent corosion which is believed to be the cause of august's pipe failure. chevron proposed using a 9- percent chromium steel pipe. but the chemical safety board questioned why they were not using stainless steel with 18% chromium..which they believed was the industry standard. the city hired outside experts who ultimately concluded 9 chrome provides an "inherently safer design" with that the city of richmond went ahead and issued permits for the repair of crude unit 4. the chemical safety board said "we will not endorse or object to that decision" city councilman tom butt said he believes chevron "covered all their bases" and says ultimately no pipe will last forever which is why they must be "rigorously inspected on a regular basis." and catherine chevron says it

in their heels and saying we'll see what happen adam: dan henninger was on the varney show this morning. do you think we'll hit recession if we go over the cliff. probably not. we'll muddle along. do you want to counter your boss? >> he would no more than i do about this. i think whether it is january 1 or a few days later that's not the issue. it is does the united states take a turn toward fiscal sanity in terms of restraining spending while allowing the economy to grow and not having a tax policy that hurts it. so the deal could come at any time. if you want to be optimistic i think republicans are realizing how much leverage they have with the sequester. these are automatic spending cuts. the obama doesn't want them. this is leverage point for republicans. adam: you're an economist. we're journalists and we're only good for free drinks. are we going over the cliff? >> i think it is undeniable the economy falls into recession if we do go over the fiscal cliff. even chairman bernanke was very clear on this point telling everyone if the economy goes over the fiscal cliff even the fed itself do

a professor, dan smith, from the university of florida testified at your hearing in tampa. in fact, that his investigation, is the university investigation found that there were two particular groups that utilized in the history of florida early voting over the previous decade sundays as the time that they voted. one was african-americans, and the other was hispanics. that was one thing the legislation did. the law also made voting harder for people who had moved from one county to another and had a different address. because when they showed up to the new voter registration, if they did not have in their documentation, such as their drivers license, which likely they had not updated from the old address, it was a different county, they were not allowed a ballot. they were given a provisional ballot, and we know from the 2008 elections of the provisional ballots cast, one half of them in 2008 were thrown out. now, as a result of the new voter suppression law, you've already stated, mr. chairman, long lines an avalanche of provisional ballots, court challenges, all of it has come to pass. you

even more significant this time, dan, because really the american job generation machine has slowed down dramatically. and we've let our business environment get less and less efficient. we've let the cost of doing business rise up. we've got -- we're losing many, many more investment decisions and business activities to other countries than we're getting back. and yet, the political debate including the one we're having this morning is really not about the really important things. it's not about skills. it's not about the fundamental structure of reforms we need to make in our budget, our tax system. we're kind of -- we've gotten ourselves into a kind of a short-term day-to-day dialogue. we're not really addressing the real issues. >> a couple things going back to jpmorgan. first of all, we learned time and time that no man, no human being is smarter than the markets. not anybody. that's number one. and number two, with regard to the banks and the size of the bank, we got rid of glass steegle which allowed investment banking to combine with commercial banking because we needed to b

: let's get another call in from dan in massachusetts on our line for independents. you're on the "washington journal." go ahead. caller: good morning. my point is i looked into this just a little bit because my curiosity had me. because how can a human being do something like this? and it turns out your point you were making earlier, in most of these instances these kids do have some type of mental problems be it depression or whatever. but it's from what i could see the majority of them are on prescription drugs. and these drugs, it says right on them that your chances of commiting suicide have increased 20 fold by taking this drug. so the connection between the prescription drug epidemic we have in our country and how it links to this is fascinating. and another point i want to make, in a bigger picture our nation, our country. the people here we've been losing our rights for ten years. they've been getting flushed down the toilet. and we haven't felt the repercusions from this at home. but certainly the writing should be on the wall based on what's happening that thi
